Mollusk jerky was a type of jerky that was consumable by humans and Pijal varactyls. It could be made from mollusks,[1] creatures that typically possessed a shell-protected, meaty body.[2] During the Republic Era, mollusk jerky was considered a delicacy on the Inner Rim planet Pijal. Pijal's lord regent, the Jedi Rael Averross, found that he disliked the taste of the jerky.[1]

In 40 BBY,[3] near the royal palace on Pijal, Averross rode a Pijal varactyl and kept mollusk jerky in a gear basket attached to his riding mount. Before returning the creature to the palace stables, he fed it a large stick of mollusk jerky, which the varactyl enjoyed immensely.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Mollusk jerky first appeared in Master & Apprentice, a 2019 novel written by Claudia Gray.[1]

  3. Master & Apprentice gives the age of Obi-Wan Kenobi as seventeen years old, while ToppsDigitalLogoStar Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) establishes that Kenobi was born fifty-seven years before the Battle of Yavin. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Yavin battle to 0 BBY, thereby placing Kenobi's birth in 57 BBY and the events of Master & Apprentice around 40 BBY.
